An exceptionally well crafted belt buckle celebrating the Montana state centennial 1889-1989 created by Montana Silversmiths. This example should not be confused with the far more common versions plated with sterling silver as this one made of solid sterling silver with 22K gold plating. Montana Silversmiths is well known for their highly artistic and superbly executed belt western belt buckles. This one is marked 81-500 (limited edition of 500) and is inscribed Merry Christmas 1988 From all of us at Newman Ranch. In addition the Montana Silversmith back stamp and Sterling Silver mark are impressed. Excellent condition.
Dimension: 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
